When my daughter was 2 years old, we still lived out in the country. One day, my teenage sister was visiting and we were just hanging out by the pool.
Ashtyn was SO CUTE, pushing her little grocery cart with all her plastic food in it around on the patio.
When I turned toward the house to go check on dinner, I suddenly heard something behind me.
My sister, FULLY CLOTHED, was coming up out of the pool with Ashtyn in her arms.
I scolded her, “What in the world are you doing?”
She was sobbing, “Ashtyn pushed her shopping cart into the pool! I just dove to the bottom to get her!”
Wow! I never saw it coming! I didn’t see Ashtyn fall into the pool. I never even knew that I had a PROBLEM!
God wasn’t surprised at all. He knew what was going to happen. He had my sister there at PRECISELY the right time, for protection.
We just assume we’ve misplaced our car keys. But, it could be God making us late for the accident, keeping us away from the road rage or protecting us from the terrorism.
So many times, we don’t even know we’re headed for trouble. But, God goes out BEFORE us!
His angels have charge over us and continually encircle us. We don’t need insurance…we’ve got ASSURANCE!
We don’t need a backup plan JUST IN CASE God fails. We don’t need no stinking safety net! (Sorry about the grammar.)
HOW MUCH does God have to do for us before we recognize it and give Him the credit?
Do not sell God short. Do not mistake FAVOR for coincidence. God is SO GOOD and He’s watching over us. Be sure to give Him the glory!
Did God ever show up at just the RIGHT TIME to keep you or your family safe? Tell me how it happened.
